Other than a Pioneer CD stereo the interior remains original.  The steering wheel is intact and undamaged.  The rear sliding widows operate with ease.
Overall, it looks and feels like it just left the showroom.  The front seat shock absorbers have good spring.  Everything works.

test drive

In town and on the highway with three adults.  The ride as a passenger is comfortable and with good space for movement.  The driver position is high and commanding over the road.  There are good lines of sight for the driver.  It moves and handles well in traffic.  The gears shift smoothly and the alignment is straight.  There is no sign of a need of any immediate maintainence. 
The LJ73 is the type of car built for everyday with the hopes of making the commute fun!  It feels like it should be jumping in puddles and pulling up to the beach in the afternoon.  Life is what you make it, and this Land Cruiser is ready to take you there AND BACK.
